City Hall (206 S. Main St.) will be sold and renovated as Greenville leaders plan to relocate the City’s operations next year.
M. Peters Group will purchase the building for $12.5 million, but there’s a catch. The City has the right to retain ownership of the first five floors of the building if it doesn’t reach a deal on its new space.
The City hopes to purchase two floors near Falls Park (55 Camperdown Way), moving several offices:
- Mayor’s Office
- City Manager’s Office
- City Attorney
- Economic Development
- Communications and Engagement
- Parks, Recreation, and Tourism
All other City departments will move to Halton Road.
What factors influenced this decision?
The city considered multiple factors in making its decision to relocate:
- 206 S. Main St. | ~$16 million to keep the first five floors of the building and renovate with a projected annual revenue of $100,000
- 55 Camperdown Way | $14.3 million for two floors with a projected annual revenue of $168,000
- Construction timeline
- 206 S. Main St. | Three years
- 55 Camperdown Way | One year
- Other benefits of 55 Camperdown Way
- More efficient communication and collaboration among teams with less floors
- Open floor plan
- Room for growth
No matter where operations end up, City Council plans to move its chambers to the first level of either building and create a larger waiting area, making public meetings more accessible.
